Welcome to ydtalk.com, where York Dispatch staffers and contributors go off-deadline and off-topic.

We blog on a scattered spread of topics of interest to people in and around York County, Pennsylvania, including area yard sales, York Revolution baseball and local food.

We also put out more “American Idol” coverage in a week than you could digest in a month, and we keep a current and comprehensive list of entertainment events throughout the county at York Weekend.

Want to blog for us? Do you keep a blog of interest to Yorkers that you’d like us to promote? Contact editor Allison Cooper by sending an email to acooper@yorkdispatch.com.
